Great Starting Points for Beginners
We are committed to helping you achieve your goals at the YMCA every step of the way. The Y has a wide menu of options for folks new to physical activity or returning to it after a prolonged absence. All of our group exercise programs include modification options and are open to people of various abilities. We also offer 101 and Express classes that are specifically designed for beginners.
The LOSE to WIN program is a great way to learn sustainable ways to eat healthier, move more and lose weight. This program focuses on the importance of physical activity and nutrition, while also discussing motivation, obstacles and pitfalls that make losing weight (and keeping it off) challenging. A weekly, group based, one-hour meeting provides a supportive network of others working on similar goals to help when the going gets tough and to celebrate successes along the way! Join this FREE program today and get started on creating lasting change.
If you would like to know more about these programs and which ones are best suited to your needs and interests, see the Health Living Director at your local Y. Then join the fun with others just like you! Not all of these classes are available at all Y locations, so check your local Y’s program listings.
